What Is Eating My Tomatoes?

jessisokAugust 18, 2013

Any idea what is doing this to my tomatoes? I can never fund any bugs on them, just find tunnels. Also, what can be done to stop the tunneling? I'd prefer a non toxic method, if possible, but if not no biggie. :)

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer!

The tomato fruitworm. They eat holes into the tomatoes which "seal" -- it's great that they seal because youcan trim out the bad spot.

Start looking for the critters when the tomatoes are green.
